Ethos Networks Reveals Mobile Backhaul Transport Solution

Ethos Networks announced its new E-240 switch designed to serve as a mobile backhaul transport solution. The switch offers QoS and traffic engineering capabilities based on standardized Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB) and PBB -- Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE), a.k.a. IEEE 802.1ah and 802.1Qay. It is optimized to address Ethernet service delivery with high scalability of up to 240Gbps coupled with service assurance supporting bound delay and jitter and sub-50ms restoration time essential to the delivery of real-time applications and timing information in the mobile backhaul environment. It also supports IEEE-1588v2 and Synchronous Ethernet based on G.8261 and G.8262 to address timing and synchronization issues found in mobile backhaul.
